The first really depends on whether the tire clearance allows running 28X700C, but that is a classically beautiful time machine with chromed forks and stays. I would not want it as my only bike. A friend has a Tom Kellogg frame for years and it remains beautiful.

Until then, I am more than happy with my 2016 Bianchi Volpe.

No 1. Waterford or Gunnar in gloss black with a bright stainless fork setup for cantilever brakes.
No 2. A Bob Jackson World Tour World Tour | Bob Jackson Cycles Again in gloss black with a red panel on the seat tube and a red head tube with metal badge and chromed dropouts and fork ends

Either would be nice with Newvex lugs on the head tube. Yes I would prefer a 1 1/8 steerer tube, more choices..

No. 3 would be a Spectrum Cycles frame. WHy, because I used to visit the shop when they first opened.

Until that day, I am more than happy with my Bianchi.
See how fickle lust is, just 3 months later I have a new object of lust.
